Kanye West is no stranger to weird press. Whether it’s stealing all of Shia LaBeouf’s clothes, to possibly running for president, it seems that the rapper is always ready to shock the world in a new way. So with that in mind, his latest claim might be a big surprise to some, or feel like more of the same to others…

According to Radar Online, the rapper revealed during a recent interview that he has a “superpower.”

While that’s quite the statement to make, it’s definitely not what you’re thinking. As it turns out, the superpower he is referring to is his bipolar disorder. He explained:

“I had never been diagnosed until I was 39. But like I said on the album, it’s not a disability, it’s a superpower.”

Although we’re not sure many people would call bipolar disorder a superpower, at least it seems West is trying to view his mental illness in the the best light possible. As the rapper has been publicly battling with mental health issues in recent times, it’s good to see him trying to stay positive in any way he can.
